Oct. 26 & 27, 2017. Halifax, NS. What would a different conversation about the relationship between race, place, and the environment in Indigenous and African Nova Scotian communities look like? How can we engage in a more inclusive conversation about the social justice dimensions of the environment? This free public and academic symposium will bring together American, Nova Scotian, and Canadian experts to engage in a solution-based, cross-cultural conversation about some of the most salient issues of our times, and their impacts on our most vulnerable communities who are all too often left out of the conversation.

Social activist and Nova Scotia native LYNN JONES will reflect on her brother Rocky Jones and growing up in Nova Scotia. Lynn Jones is a community and labour activist who grew up in Truro.
